Here at Advancing Science Worldwide, we are driven by a single goal: to increase access to research information and knowledge of science in all nations. We work to further this purpose by providing to those in need equipment, books, journals, facilities, and other materials that serve a great use in scientific fields among all ages and skill levels.
Co-founders Rithvik Musuku and Zahir Abdul started Advancing Science Worldwide as they believed that all countries should be able to study science and engage with the scientific community. They were appalled by what was essentially a discouraging of science in many developing countries worldwide. In some countries, science funding is almost nonexistent and science is completely frowned upon unless it has a short term, practical impact.
Scientists in such regions may not be able to receive support from their home countries and their citizens and that is the problem ASW hopes to alleviate. For those that are underprivileged in their availability of scientific knowledge and materials, ASW does as much as possible to provide equipment, books, journals, facilities, and other materials that serve a great use in scientific fields among all ages and skill levels.
